Mrs McGregor


Welcome to Class 2

Year 1 and Year 2

Teacher: Mrs. McGregor

Teaching Assistants: Mrs. Maudsley and Mrs. Huntbach


Welcome back after half term, I hope you all had a lovely break.

We are starting our new topic looking at King James I and the Gunpowder plot. Our topic starts on the infamous 5th November and we will be working hard throughout this term to remember gunpowder, treason and plot! We will look at the life of King James I, the first king of England and Scotland, and the life of Guy Fawkes  - discovering if he should be blamed for the Gunpowder Plot. We will create art pieces based upon fireworks and bonfires. We will step back in time to put ourselves in the shoes of the man who wanted to blow up the King!

In Science, we are going to be completing our topic 'Animals Including Humans' with a visit from the Blue Cross who will teach us how to care for our pets. We will then move onto the topic of 'Materials'.

PE this half term will be on a Tuesday with Mr. Gibbons, on a Thursday with me and, of course, the 30 minutes at the end of each day.

This term also brings us the joy of Christmas and our Nativity! Parts have already been assigned and the children should be very busy learning their lines. We will be practising and learning the songs throughout the term up until our final performances on 5th/6th December. Be ready to sing 'It's a long way on a donkey' at every possible opportunity!

Class 2 will bring reading books home each week. Please read with your child each night where possible, as this will help them to become confident readers with a true enjoyment of reading.

Spellings this term will be the word lists in the diaries. The children will learn 5-6 words each week and will be tested on a Monday. If they spell the words correctly they will be highlighted in the back of the diary (Yellow for Autumn, Pink for Spring and Green for Summer.). They will then get a dot next to the words they need to learn for the following week.

Don't forget your reading diaries, PE kits and water bottles Class 2!
